Wish For It All, Birthday Happy, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The Wish for it All Bundle can be found in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog.  Check it out on page 65. The dies are fabulous and coordinate with a fantastic birthday themed stamp set.  In my little happy, I’ve used the color palette of Whisper White, Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry.  And guess which designer series paper I used. Check out the flip side of the Peaceful Poppies DSP. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

By adding the panels of the striped DSP, I think this box can be used for any age or gender.  It’s also large enough to fill with lots of different types of treats. I filled mine with some gummy carrots from my local Dollar Tree.

One of the best parts about Stampin’ Up!’s inks and paper is the color coordination. Because I wanted my ribbon to pop, I just inked up a sponge dauber with my Calypso Coral ink and changed the color of the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle. Voila!

Wish For It All, Birthday Happy, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The coordinating die set in the Wish For It All bundle, has two doily dies. One of the dies is very detailed while the other is solid. That made it easy to cut the solid die in half to create the top to the cupcake. Want to see how to create this sweet little happy. After watching my free video tutorial, I’ll bet you will be creating a batch.

Here’s how the magic happens.

Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

First of all, it’s the new year. So, we all need birthday cards. The Timeless Tropical bundle, in the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog, will definately help you with that task.

Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

Because the die set contains that fabulous pineapple image, you’ll be creating one-of-a-kind birthday cards in no time flat. Maybe you’ll decide to add in a couple of thank you cards while you’re at it! 

Timeless Tropical Birthday, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

This one came together pretty quickly. I started off with my color palette of Grapefruit Grove, Whisper White, Old Olilve and Daffodil Delight. Seems like a happy color combo, don’t you think?

Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

The Timeless Tropical Bundle contains a versatile 10-piece cling stamp set and a coordinating 13-piece die set.  Purchase the bundle and save 10%. On top of that, you’ll earn a FREE Sale-a-Bration item. But, the star of that die set, in my opinion is that pineapple. Due to the way the die cuts, you have so much texture and interest added to your project.

Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

I used a masking technique to get the leaves behind that gorgeous hibiscus. Rather than color the image, I decided on a simplier look on the inside of the card.

Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

Above all, you know we can’t have any naked envelopes. By using my Stampin’ Write Markers I was able to add color to the small pineapple image. Want to learn that technique as well as the masking technique? I can show you how in this video tutorial.

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Card Base – Thick Whisper White CS – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Mats – Grapefruit Grove CS – two @ 4″ x 5 1/4″

Timeless Tulips Birthday Card

Timeless Tulips Birthday Card

Welcome!! So sorry I’ve been a little absent. I’m still recuperating from that nasty fall I had before Christmas. But, good news, things get a little better every day. Today, I would love to share my Timeless Tulips birthday card with you. I created this one (with the help of my sweet husband) for a recent Trip Achiever’s Card Swap.

Timeless Tulips, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because I wanted to step it up a bit, I also included two of my new favorites. To really make my Timeless Tulips  card special, I cut the focal mat with the Stitched So Sweetly dies. Okay, you had me at scallops, but then they added the stitching, perfection!

Timeless Tulips, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

If you’ve been following me at all, you know I love embossing folders. So much bang for your buck. The new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder just knocks it out the park.

Timeless Tulips, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The Timeless Tulips bundle includes a fabulous 15-piece photopolymer, DistINKive stamp set with an easy to use Tulip Builder Punch. That makes creating cards like this quick, easy and fun.

Timeless Tulips, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

I wanted a soft, sweet, happy color palette. Chosing Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz achieved that, don’t you think?

Even though I’ve got my right hand in a brace, I thought I would give a video a try. Hope you enjoy it and stick with me while I completely recover from my accident.  I’ll be in the brace until February 4th, but will work through the limitation as much as I can.

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Card Base – Crumb Cake CS – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″

Wiggle Worm Side Step, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Fancy folds are a favorite of mine. Pretty evident in one of my previous blogposts. Today’s fancy fold, the side step fold is the perfect stage for the Wiggle Worms images. Coloring them in fun colors makes them even more cute. 

Wiggle Worm Side Step, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The Wiggle Worms set can be used for lots of occasions, but this time we’ll create a birthday card. Because the fold is really easy, you’ll want to create a couple of these while you’re at it. Here’s an easy to follow template you may want to save to your card file.

Okay, back to all the cuteness. Which one is your favorite? It’s hard for me to choose. But, the worm and lady bug are pretty special.

Wiggle Worm Side Step, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Using Stampin’ Blends makes coloring super easy. Those alcohol markers are so easy to use and blend. The color just glides on the paper. 

Wiggle Worm Side Step, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Can’t you see using that grassy die for lots of projects. Think about Easter and hiding a little bunny inside. The Wiggle Worms set contains lots of sentiments for all sorts of occasions. I’m already thinking about Halloween and Valentine Happies!!

Butterfly Wishes

Butterfly Wishes

Today’s a little special. It’s a two-fer!  What’s that? Two cards, one video and lots of photos on two great cards you can create with the Butterfly Wishes stamp set.

Butterfly Wishes, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

What makes the Butterfly Wishes set so special? It’s a DistINKtive set. That means, with just one stamping motion, you achieve an image with both highlights and lowlights. Pretty nifty, right? For the first card in our two-fer, let’s tackle the beautiful “Love to Celebrate you” card.

Butterfly Wishes, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Ok, first of all, those designer series papers are just too beautiful. The Garden Lane DSP is a fabulous monocromatic pack of gorgeous papers. If you love green, this is the paper pack for you.

Butterfly Wishes, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Do you just love all those layers and texture? I sure do! And that cute little flower. That’s a quick and easy creation using the Medium Daisy Punch. You gotta have that one.

Butterfly Wishes, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The large branch image from the Butterfly Wishes set, is the perfect one to appreciate the DistINKtive technology. I stamped it in Pear Pizzazz. That’s my accent color choice on this card.

Butterfly Wishes, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

No naked inside of the card this time. There is a gorgeous butterfly that I wanted to add. Stamping it on a mat of Whisper White insured that I didn’t have a mishap on the card base.  And I like the layered look as well. Next up we have a fantastic Birthday card with the Butterfly Wishes set. See the versatility in this one.

Butterfly Wishes, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

I’ve changed DSP packs on this one. This time we’ve got the fabulous Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP. The paper pack has mocaic tile designs and floral imagery with shiney accents. All I know is, it’s YUMMY!

Butterfly Wishes, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

This time I stamped the butterfly that coordinates with our Butterfly Duet punch. One of the best parts of that is we have an additional set that coordinates. The Butterfly Gala set is filled with all sorts of butterfly images and fantastic greetings.

Butterfly Wishes, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

I even stamped the sweet little flowers from the Butterfly Wishes set on the sentiment. I think it gives the greeting so much more interest and depth. I’ve even filmed a video for you, containing both card designs.
